Cyclova XC Group Training Run: Thursday Nights at Hyland Park Reserve

Getting out to train as a group is a good time, and having fun is what Cyclova XC is all about!

Come join us along with others on Thursday nights at 4:30 for trail runs through beautiful Hyland Park Reserve, in Bloomington, MN!

The group generally leaves at 4:30PM sharp from the QBP Parking lot directly into the park, click HERE for a map. There is public parking in the QBP lot, near the park entrance (look for the signs). There is generally a wide array of runners enjoying each other's company, ranging in pace from 13 minutes per mile to sub 7's. Usually, the entire group runs together for one 3 mile lap around the Hyland Lake and then some people go out again for a faster and perhaps longer loop.

We avoid running on any pavement in the park, so you'll fit right in if you wear your Vibram 5 Finger shoes (no joke, sometimes a majority of the runners have these on, but that's a whole other story).

The group ranges in size from week to week, but we're out there every week! Just show up or post on our Facebook wall to find out how many others will be there. See you on the trail!

Hyland Lake, a lap around this is a great way to start your run!
